A loss that can get you fired
There's a Howard Eskin report Vick is out 3-4 weeks with the broken hand. That's an optimistic timetable. The way Mike Kafka played in relief Sunday, Vince Young has to be the QB. And VY needs to learn the offense.
The way the defense is playing, the Eagles will be lucky to win half of those games. Speaking of defense, whose idea was it to hire Juan Castillo as coordinator? To play Casey Matthews at MLB? At WLB?
Eagles players are sniping at their own defense that in the second half couldn't get a stop against a Giants offense missing most of its firepower. DeSean Jackson said the offense is counting on the D to get stops.
Players also are dismayed about the offensive play calls in short yardage. The players are as confused about the calls as their fans. On a positive note, the players believe the problems can be fixed. At least before there was more of a prognosis on Vick.
Then there is Andy Reid. He clearly is feeling the heat as he's off to one off his worst starts ever with probably his most talented team ever. It's also one of management's priciest teams.
Reid Bill Belichicked the media after the Giants game, giving short and smug answers to questions. Belichick has three Super Bowl titles, of course. If the slide continues Reid won't be around for one.
